Embroidered Napkins

1950?  Set of 8 different La Fontaine fables embroidered large linen cocktail napkins.  $270 from Curated Store through Ebay, Feb., '20.

Here is another surprise.  I hope these were never used as napkins!  My first and second attempts to photograph these worthily failed, as the white thread does not stand out from the white background in a normal photo.  Those experiences explain my decision to photograph them on a window that allows the back light to highlight the heavier threads that make up the designs.  Lovely work!  Click on the napkin above to see all eight.
